one of my favorite things about blogging is the ability to look back. i've never done a good job journaling and i love that this blog holds so many wonderful memories and pictures. hopefully in 2012 i'll take time to preserve even more memories...looking back i see many months were rather sparse.

what a year. j and i have said that so many times about 2011. anticipation. fear. growth. tragedy. hope. death. celebration. adventure. new life. ...if there's one thing i learned this past year, it's this: there may be pain in the night but joy comes in the morning. God's love never fails. He makes all things work together for my good. [your love never fails, jesus culture]
And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. 1 John 4:16
